Yesterday was my first workout. It actually made my nausea go away so maybe I'll try to figure out the best time of day to walk. I walked 1.5 miles at a 17:30/mile pace. One of my knees was bothering me before I started so I tried to take it easy.

I'm planning to go again this evening and again tomorrow since I won't be able to go on Saturday.

I was waiting to post my comment yesterday till I had worked out, but it never happened. Anyway, thanks Annika for the support! Thank you both for chearing us on!!

let's see, Monday I walked our long family morning walk -- 23 mins, 1.11 miles. Tuesday I did over 2 miles at 15:01/mile. Wednesday I ran/walked a 3k on the treadmill. 3k was according to my iPod + NikePlus, the treadmill said it was over 2 miles. I may need to recalibrate my Nike Plus thing. Anyway, my pace was 13:59!! Yesterday was an off day, only went on the short family morning walk 7 mins and .32 miles. Today I really made up for it, just wait till Monday's progress report!!! I'm dying right now, but I walked Uh-lot today, so I'm really happy!

OK, I goofed. I didn't walk Thursday. Bret did a tri and I wanted to go support him. I was going to go to the gym before, but I didn't get off work in time. Then I was going to go after, but we got home late, sorta fighting, so we had to sit down for a long chat.

Yesterday was our 19th anniversary. As a gift, Bret took me out to dinner, the Anniversary Inn overnight, then shopping for new sneakers and the Nike+ thing. Of course, I don't own an iPod any more, so I will have to borrow from my kids. They can tke turns loaning me theirs when they get back.

Today, I will be doing my 4 mile walk. I decided to stick with the original training program since the timing fit my plans. I do have a plan B, though. There is also a half marathon at the end of October. So if something goes awry with my training, then I will just skip to the later one.

I'll let you guys know how my new shoes work.

Annika and Bear, you rock. Can't wait to see you guys!

OK. I walked 4.0 miles tonight in 1 hour and 23 minutes. It was a slower pace than my 3 miler because I was outside. It is much easier to maintain pace on a treadmill. My shoes worked out great! Legs and feet kinda hurt, but they are not used to this level of hard work. All in all a good work out.

I do not like walking the greenbelt by myself, though. Bret didn't like the idea of walking with me, because he had to run 1:30 tonight to train for the big tri next weekend. So I either need to get a dog or stick with the gym. Maybe the kids can go with me on roller skates?..
